Thank you for your quick response, Andre.
I agree you are right on your suggestion that Fedora is trying to umount a
network file system. I think it actually is trying to umount a CentOS file
system installed in another hard drive. The reason why I think that way is
that whenever I log on to CentOS, it complains that something is wrong with
the file system and checks it

Do you know how to tell Fedora not to umount CentOS file system?
